. the headline out of these talks so far, president obama may take executive action, and step around congress and avoid the legislative process. but the the action isn't all just in d.c. the gun control debate is a national issue. just last night new york's governor cuomo called for his state to pass the toughest gun laws in the country. listen to this. >> new york state, led the way on guns once before. it was sullivan's law of 1911, which was the first in the nation gun control law, model law that required a permit for possession of a handgun. new york was the first, it's still on the books. new york led the way then, let's pass safe and fair legislation and lead the way once again in saving lives. stuart: now, that was pretty close to a standing ovation there for governor cuomo. vice-president biden's meeting with the n.r.a. this afternoon. starts at one o'clock eastern. now, in just a few minutes, libertarian john stossel joins our company and what does he think of president obama's plan where he may use executive order? find out after the opening bell. you may see a sports headline the s

's, of course, what president obama campaigned on and he got that as a part of the fiscal cliff deal. moving forward i think you can expect to see president obama hitting the road, taking his message on the road, traveling to different states and making the argument if the debt ceiling isn't increased, the economy will suffer. you hear him say he's not going to negotiate with republicans. what specifically does that mean, we'll have to wait and see because, of course, house speaker john boehner is also taking a very hard line. he has said that he's not going to negotiate with president obama in these one-on-one sessions that we've seen in the past budget battles and he believes he's got leverage with the debt ceiling. but i think the white house will press on whatever package they agree upon to include some new revenues as well as spending cuts, of course, that is the big issue, republicans would like it to all come from spending cuts. so, it's undoubtedly going to be another knockdown, dragdown fight, alex, but it will be interesting to see who is negotiating with whom in the coming rounds
. the future of the u.s. troop residency in afghanistan is front and center this week. president obama expected to meet afghanistan's president, hamid karzai at the white house friday. focus to make sure there's a smooth security handover to the afghan government when nato forces leave afghanistan next year. it's still unclear how many u.s. troops will remain to train afghan security forces and focus on counterterrorism. chris lawrence outlines the proposals for the transition. >> reporter: the options are on the table. at the low end, a little more than 6,000 troops, mostly special operations forces hunting terrorists with a small amount of training for afghan forces. the 10,000 option would still focus on al qaeda, but would add conventional troops to expand afghan training. a 15,000 option would include even more conventional troops to go on limited patrols and give afghans even more support. some experts say, forget that last option. 15,000. >> it's not politically tenable in congress, it's not doable of a budget execution perspective. >> reporter: analyst stephanie sanok worked in baghdad
of women that he has. >> oh, please. >> to barack obama. >> oh, please. no. he's fine. >> they're binders. it's different now. >> no, it's not different. >> now it's different because barack obama obviously doesn't know any qualified women to serve in his cabinet. mitt romney's got binders of women that are qualified to serve. >> he widened the search and was mocked. >> no, actually, mitt romney basically ridiculed the whole concept of hiring women by getting binders. and this president has put policies -- >> has just decided not to hire women. >> are you going to interrupt? >> i don't need the binders. i just won't hire them. >> you can stop talking for a second. >> hey, valerie -- >> the 2,000 tweets that come in right now saying shut up and let mika talk. >> i'm going to take care -- let's shortcut this whole process. i'm just not going to hire any women. and hey, by the way, we just lost another female cabinet member yesterday. that's another man we can hire. to play basketball with and go golfing with. >> the supreme court. all right. the bottom line is this president, as i was going

day, sooner or later, he is going to say obama had a good idea. >> but what we know is that canter was not interested in finding common ground with the president, but interested in remaking the republican party. as a leader of the so-called "young guns" on the hill, canter was recruiting like-minded candidates for the midterms. he called them, coached them and answered the text messages and raised lots and lots of money tor them and through his pac in 2010, canter donated $657,000 to soon to be new members of the house, and he helped to raise millions more for their campaigns, and when the 112th congress was seated with 87 gop freshmen, eric canter had a lot of new allies. his party was in the majority and he was not the whip anymore, but the leader with influence rivalling john boehner's. for his part, joe biden increasingly became president obama's go-to fix it man with a hand from iraq to afghanistan to the new banking regulations to the auto bailout, and he is now regarded by some as the most influential vice president ever, and the last up with was dick cheney which is why the
for armed guards in schools, you might recall, something president obama says he is skeptical about. former congresswoman gabe yell giffords is launching her own gun control campaign on the two-year anniversary of the mass shooting that nearly took her life. giffords and her husband mark kelly announced the americans for responsible solutions initiative. giffords and kelly, who also happen to be gun owners, say they hope to push back against the influence of the pro gun lobby. >> i bought a gun at walmart recently. i went through a background check. why can't we just make it more difficult for criminals to get guns. >> the nra would say to you they can get them illegally. >> i don't agree with you. the gun lobby opposes a gun purchaser being checked against the terrorist watch list. doesn't that seem like a commonsense thing? >> you have a gun. >> yes. >> gabby and i are both gun owners. we are strong supporters of the second amendment. >> it is the commonsense consensus you're going for? >> we are. i think most gun owners are in the same camp with us. >> when it can happen to children in a
